However, China is rapidly developing and has grown in the phase of modernization, with an immense speed and is also welcoming the outer world to interact and do business with them.
Dabeiyuan Monastery, lying on Tianwei Lu in the Hebei district of the city, the monastery is not only the largest Buddhist monastery in Tianjin but the busiest Buddhist temple in Tianjin as well and it is located in the north of the city. The monastery houses a display of Buddhist relics and hundreds of Buddhist statues from different dynasties, dating back to the 3rd century AD, Anno Domini.
Built in 1611 and expanded in 1940, it was partially destroyed in a 1976 earthquake and was restored in 1980. Before 1956, the monastery contained a skull relic of Monk Xuanzhuang, also known as Hiuen Tsang, which had been given to a monastery in Nalanda in India for establishing friendship.
